Patterns for teen bedroom crafts are everywhere. If you or your teen are not very crafty or need some help in making some crafts to go in their bedroom, you may want to look at using patterns. Here are a few ideas to decorate your teen’s room that include a pattern for easier assembly.
Here is a doorway dangly for the doors or even as a curtain. This pattern craft can be done a few different ways and the instructions for each are included. Items you will need include:
•One tension rod to fit the doorway or window.
•Dangly disk look: String or yarn, craft punch, Card stock, Needle, small metal washer
•Nifty pool noodle look: Foam noodles, bread knife, needle, string
•Pretty petals look: Craft foam flower shapes, needle, colored straws, String or thin ribbon
•Plush pom-poms look: Ribbon, colorful pom-poms in a variety of colors, craft or fabric glue
•Medallion medley look: Ribbon, card stock in a variety of colors
Each design will start with about twenty strands of string or yarn to fill a standard door or window opening. The strands should be about one and a half times the height of the opening. For example if your height is eighty inches you will need 120 inch strands of string. Here are the instructions for each look:
•Dangling disks: Using a craft punch, cut disks from the card stock. You can cut any design you want from the card stock. Then use a needle to thread on the disks onto the string using a 7 inch space. Tie knots before and after each card stock shape to keep them in place. Attach a small metal washer to the bottom of the string to keep it taut. Tie the top of the string around the tension rod. Continue these steps until you have finished filling the tension rod.
•Nifty pool noodles: cut three or four foam noodles into 5/8 inch thick slices with a bread knife. Thread these together with the needle and string. You should have about thirty or so slices per strand of string. Hang up the same way as the dangling disks.
•Pretty petals: Use a needle to alternately thread craft foam flower shapes and 2 Â½ inch lengths of colored straw on the string or thin ribbon. Again, hang the same as the previous designs.
•Plush pom-poms: Use the craft or fabric glue to decorate a ribbon strand with the pom-poms. Then hang as usual.
•Medallion Medley: Glue a row of two inch wide card stock circles to one side of a ribbon strand. Space the card stock two inches apart. Then glue a second row of circles to opposite side of the ribbon. Hang as previously instructed.
Another great pattern for teen bedroom crafts is a pattern for a bulletin board. Here are the materials you will need and how to make the bulletin board:
•2 pieces of 16 inch cork squares
•16 inch square foam core
•20 inch square quilt batting Â½ inch thick
•20 inch square cotton fabric
•Glue gun and sticks
•6 yards ribbon a Â½ inch wide
•Thread and needle
Use the craft glue to attach cork pieces to the foam and let dry. Glue the second cork piece on top of the first and let dry. Place batting over board so 2 inches of the batting hangs over on each side. Hot glue the batting edges to the back of the board. Make sure it is straight and lays down smooth. Put the fabric over the batting and secure with hot glue in the back. Start at the bottom left corner; stretch a piece of ribbon diagonally over the board. The last 2 inches of ribbon should be hot glued to the back of the board. Continue attaching ribbons moving up the board diagonally and spacing each ribbon 4 inches apart. When the diagonals are finished in one direction begin on the other side to create a checkerboard effect. Position buttons over intersections or corners of 2 ribbons and stitch in place with thread and needle. Do this for all the ribbon intersections or corners.
